What Should You Eat to Control Acne Problems?

Are you trying to find out the cause of your acne? It might be your diet pattern. Read on to explore some interesting facts about how food habits can have an impact on your skin!

Which Foods Can Trigger Acne?

Some foods like white rice, pasta, sugar, and white bread and those containing high glycemic carbs, saturated fats, dairy, and trans fats increase blood sugar quickly which prompts the body to release insulin growth factor, a hormone responsible for growth. An increased amount of the element in the blood might boost the production of sebum from oil glands, thereby increasing the likelihood of acne.

What Foods Can Benefit Your Skin?

Consuming low glycemic foods sourced from complex carbs can protect against acne conditions which include whole grains, fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes, etc. On the other hand, those dishes packed with the mineral zinc, Vit A, and E, and antioxidants can also produce healthy effects for your skin.

However, certain foods can benefit the skin in general. They are yellow, orange fruits, veggies like carrots, sweet potatoes, apricots, spinach, dark green and leafy veggies, blueberries, tomatoes, whole-wheat bread, quinoa, brown rice, pumpkin seeds, turkey, peas, beans and lentils, fatty fishes and nuts.

Meanwhile, everyone’s health varies and that said, certain foods might trigger the acne problem, unfortunately. However, it’s wise to adopt a diet plan recommended by a doctor since many foods might trigger allergic reactions for specific individuals. Aso, if consulted by a medical practitioner, one can avoid any harm to the health posed by the change in food habits.


Lastly, a wholesome balanced diet loaded with fresh fruits, vegetables, a platter of proteins, and whole grains can be the ideal solution to the acne drama!
